AMN13 Meeting

The NSP Eastern Division will hold its fall Continuing Education Clinic for Avalanche, Mountain Travel & Rescue, and Nordic (AMN) instructors and evaluators on the weekend of September 20 to 22, 2013, in Valley Forge National Historic Park, Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.

The fall 2011 event in Northfield, Massachusetts, received full-page coverage in the Winter 2012 Ski Patrol magazine.

The event has been registered with NSP as Nordic, MTR, and Avalanche 1 Instructor Continuing Education Clinics.

This weekend is open to all patrollers and non-patrollers.

Be sure to revisit this page as the meeting approaches. Changes and additions continue to be made.


This year's theme is “CHOICES: Decision Making in Outdoor Education & Leadership.” A challenging schedule for the weekend is in preparation and will be posted here as soon as it is finalized. Take a look at the event poster.
